Less risk of gum disease
Bleeding gums and other gum problems are something we take very seriously here at Higher Lane Dental Practice. Hygiene therapy may reduce the risk of developing several serious medical conditions linked with gum disease. A surprising 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives. But with carefully considered dental care, the risks can be easily controlled.
By teaching children the most effective brushing techniques from a young age, they will take these skills into adulthood. We can provide preventative education and show parents how to lead by example when brushing and flossing at home.
Our high quality dental care services will help to keep mouths free from tooth decay and gum disease. Hygiene therapy can also prevent and treat bad breath.
Through a combination of our skill and care, plus your own oral hygiene efforts at home, you can ensure your teeth and gums remain in tip-top condition for life. Instead of filling decayed teeth, we believe in investing time improving your oral care routine. This way all our patients can maintain a healthy, happy mouth.
A sparkling, healthier smile
Following a visit to one of our lovely hygienists, you can enjoy that squeaky clean, shiny feel of professionally cleaned teeth.
During your appointment, we can provide oral hygiene advice, plus remove stain, tartar, hard deposits and plaque from the most hard to reach areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes - a process also known as scaling and polishing. Your hygienist will prevent and treat gum disease as well as advise you on the best brushing techniques to keep your teeth free of plaque.
We'll give you tips on flossing and using inter-dental brushes. If you have a bridge, denture, brace or a dental implant, you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with. At Higher Lane Dental Practice we can also offer dietary advice and other information such as how to give up smoking.
